Happy Last Long Weekend of the Summer

We've had a busy week here at Bodacious moving things around in the store to fit all of the great items arriving daily. It's been great to spend more time here at the store, re-connecting with customers and hearing what people are looking for. We always take your feedback seriously and pass along any relevant info to our designers. One of the requests you made was to have more clothing in natural fibre fabrics. We listened. The new Diane Kennedy fall line is made with bamboo or soy and feels amazing on the skin, wears extremely well and looks fantastic! Diane's line is designed and created in Vancouver. In fact, we're very proud of the fact that the majority of the clothing we carry at Bodacious is manufactured right here in Vancouver. It's just an added bonus to know that when you're buying great fashion at our store, you're also supporting local women in their entrepreneurial pursuits!
Have a wonderful long weekend!

Big Momma!

I'd like to introduce you to the newest member of the Bodacious family - "Big Momma". She's big and strong and sweet and feminine at the same time and we love her so:) Can't wait to drive her around!

Getting ready for fall!

Workin' the wrap dress! WOW - we've really hit on something big. The wrap dress is such a flattering style on so many different body types so we're just going to keep making them in lots of different colours and patterns. For fall we've added a collar and cuff to our jersey style and we've found an amazing source for prints. Our Kimono dress is going through some changes as well to create an even better and more flattering fit. Our customers have been asking so we're providing...more, more, more dresses at Bodacious.

Thought for the Day!

We got an email from Kelly Bliss the other day. She runs a website called Plus Size Yellow Pages and is a very outspoken and articulate advocate for women with curves. Check out her debate or "Fat Rant" about size prejudice on her website. Made us stand up and cheer and get frustrated by the age old argument. Can you be healthy and over size 14? We think so.
Let us know what you think...

Have your Cake and Eat it too!!!

Ok, we just celebrated our Brandy's birthday with a cake from Breka Bakery on Fraser Street and I'm pretty sure it was one of the best cakes I've ever had!!! It's a German cake called "Bieninstich" (beesting) that's filled with custard and whipped cream and has crunchy almonds and honey on top. Ummmm...Yummmmm!!! Check it out if you get a chance. The best part? It was only $6.95 for the whole cake.
Have a great weekend all!
(oh yes, we're having a flip-flop sale this weekend $10.00 per pair)
